Photo Flash: First Look at Ambassador Theatre's HAPPILY EVER AFTER, Beg. Tonight

The Ambassador Theatre presents the world premiere of Happily Ever After by Cristina Colmena. Happily Ever After will run today, March 12-30, with an opening night reception on March 13, at the Mead Theater Lab at Flashpoint (916 G Street NW, Washington DC). Scroll down for some photos from the production!

In Happily Ever After, one and one not always equals two. The couples and its complicated arithmetic are exposed through three stories where characters want to be happy but they don´t know how. When you get stood up, when you wake up beside a stranger, when after thirty years you don´t know what to speak about. The loneliness of sleeping alone and of sleeping with someone. Why one plus one may equal nothing?

Three couples of different ages, representing a lifetime of romantic struggles, are crippled by fears and insecurities and unable to find fulfilment in love. We see young lovers bound by a powerful attraction yet destined to part; cynical middle aged 'one night standers' failing to act on a promising encounter; and an older, deeply unhappy couple keeping up appearances after thirty years of marriage.

The compelling dark comedy and its high emotional resonance present a chance for self-reflection and an opportunity to learn from the characters' mistakes. All three 'un-love' stories are poignant reminders that if we keep sitting on the fence, fearful and pessimistic, happiness may never come!

Performances will be Tuesdays-Saturdays at 8:00pm, and Sunday matinees at 2:00pm. Tickets are $20 - $40 and can be purchased online at www.aticc.org/home/box-office. Happily Ever After is recommended for mature audiences.
